Research Interests

A common theme of my research is condensed matter physics, in particular the electrical and magnetic properties of solids. My research activities are quite diverse, including such fields as vortex dynamics in high-temperature superconductors, giant magnetoresistance in magnetic superlattices, magnetic properties of nanoparticles and nanostructured materials.
My current research interests lie mainly within the fields of nanotechnology and single molecule electronics. I am working on the problem of attaching electrical contacts to individual molecules such as DNA and conjugated oligomers, ultimately aiming towards the fabrication of single molecule electronic devices.
